The 2018 Maine Lobster Ride is Sunday, July 22, at the Camden Snow Bowl in Camden, Maine.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Lobster Ride follows winding, country lanes and the breathtaking rockbound coast past lighthouses, lupines and lobster boats. The ride features four distance options, from a family-friendly 15-miles to a 100-mile route that was recognized by Bicycling Magazine as one of the TOP TEN centuries in the country, as well as mountain bike rides and skills clinics.
The Maine Lobster Ride is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It directly benefits our education, advocacy, and outreach programs that help make Maine better for biking.
When we founded the Maine Lobster Ride 17 years ago, there were relatively few opportunities to participate in organized road rides in our state. Today, that landscape is very different, and in that sense Maine is measurably much better for bicycling today that it was. On any given summer weekend there are now several riding events.
So, we have decided to say goodbye to the Maine Women’s Ride and the Maine Lobster Ride, and refocus our efforts wholeheartedly on how best to deliver on our mission for as many people, in as many parts of the state, as possible. We will have a presence at many other events state-wide, and will continue to hold our signature event, BikeMaine. We will also recommit to our role as the leading advocacy and education organization for biking and walking in Maine.
